Residents will soon be able to benefit from state-of-the-art health facilities as the keys to the new health centre in Hamer and Wardleworth were officially handed over from the builders.
Construction on the £8.4million development, which will be a centre for children's services, has now completed and a range of services are preparing to move in.
John Pierce, Chair at NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, said: "This is the fourth new health centre to be built in the borough of Rochdale and I can absolutely say that the builders and the architects that we work with
have done another great job in designing and developing fantastic state-of-the-art health facilities.
The health centre has been built right in the heart of the community, and will help to improve access to health and social care services for many years to come."
The new development will provide modern, spacious and comfortable accommodation with better facilities for the local community, patients and staff.
Services will begin to move over (many from Baillie Street Health Centre) in the New Year with the centre likely to open by the end of January 2010. Following this, we will be having an official opening and open day so local
residents can come and see all that the centre has to offer. Keep an eye out for further details in the New Year.
